Don’t parade yourself as speaker yet, Adamu warns Abass

Don’t parade yourself as speaker yet, Adamu warns Abass

National Chairman of  the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, has warned the party’s anointed speakership aspirants of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abass, to stop parading himself as elected speaker.

He handed the warning when Abass led a delegation of over 50 members-elect across party divides on a thank-you-visit on the National Working Committee (NWC) at the national secretariat in Abuja, yesterday.

The ruling party had taken exception to the various members-elect describing Abbas as speaker, as he insisted the laws guiding the office of speakership were clear, and he could only earn it on the day of proclamation by the president and commander-in-chief.

“I want to make one correction so that we will not be misrepresented. A quite number of you have referred to Abbas at the speaker. Please, pleas, he is one of the aspirants. He will become a speaker on the day of proclamation. The laws guiding that office are very clear, he will earn that on the day of proclamation.

“The Clerk to the National Assembly will conduct election. There is no option than the election. When he comes out of that election and they raise his hand, and when he is sworn in as speaker, that nomenclature (Speaker) becomes most appropriate. Continue doing your good work,” he said.

Earlier, Abbas had commended the NWC for endorsing them and assured they would do everything humanly possible to protect the interest of the party, interest of the government and of the Nigerian populace.

He pleaded with the party’s leadership to convene a meeting of the aspirants to deliberate on how to front the candidates to ensure victory for the party.
